After bringing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's creation to life on the small screen with Sherlock, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat (who also teamed up on Doctor Who) now turn their attention to Bram Stoker's legendary literary character in a new Dracula series, and with the show coming to Netflix in the US on January 4th, the final trailer for the anticipated adaptation has been revealed.

Comprised of three feature-length installments, the new Dracula series stars Claes Bang as the title, bloodthirsty character. You can get an idea of what to expect in the final trailer below, and we also have details on the series:

Synopsis: "He's been around for centuries, but what happens when a worthy adversary bites back? From the makers of "Sherlock," Claes Bang stars as Dracula in this brand-new series inspired by Bram Stoker's classic novel."

From the Previous Press Release: "Award-winning Danish actor Claes Bang (The Girl in the Spider’s Web, The Affair, Borgen) will take on the role of Dracula in Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ brand new mini-series inspired by Bram Stoker’s classic novel. Commissioned by BBC One, Dracula will be produced by Hartswood Films and is a co-production between BBC One and Netflix.

Three feature length episodes will re-introduce the world to Dracula, the vampire who made evil sexy. In Transylvania in 1897, the blood-drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. And be warned: the dead travel fast."
